Marie-Laure Blanc will be giving a workshop at TCUK17 on “How to stay on topic when on stage in a world where a 4-minute YouTube video is the standard in attention span”.
As a technical communicator, you know how to recognise great speakers. But – let’s face it – back in your office, how often do you end up going back to presentation habits detrimental to you and your audience?
Our General learning outcome for this highly interactive session is: embodying your technical communicator’s soul every time you present.
Specific outcomes are:
- Choosing the right scenario from the very beginning to the very end.
- Designing your own ready to use 4-dimension action plan for your next presentation.
- Bringing rhythm to what you say.
- Crafting crispy sentences.
Participants are expected to come with a presentation in mind. Two participants – willing to – will have the possibility to deliver a ten-minute presentation to start our session. If you are interested, get in touch before 15th September at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Marie-Laure Blanc
Some people say they want to get out of the box: I did it for real.
After ten years witnessing the daily challenges of the corporate world from my interpreting booth, I got out of it to develop an inclusive approach to leading.
For ten years, I taught translation and communication – with great pleasure – at the University of Marne la Vallée.
During the 20th century, I was lucky to study and work in Spain, the UK (Thames Valley Univ., Westminster Univ.) and France. http://marie-laure-blanc.com/
